As internet becomes more readily available in classrooms, teachers are exposing their students to environments and experiences that would be impossible otherwise. This is certainly true of ‘Skype in the Classroom’, which offers digital classes, activities and information from partnerships with organizations such as NASA, The National Museum of the Royal Navy and HMS Victory, and The New York Philharmonic, among others.

In honor of World Teacher’s Day this Friday, several new link-ups have been posted to the digital classroom, including “Humans in Space” by Nasa and ‘Climate Change: How Can We Help’ by British Council. Teachers can register to participate, linking their classrooms to the larger universe. Skype reports that there are already 38,000 teachers working together to build this digital community, with over 2,000 live projects available for classes to use.
